Politecnico Di Torino

The research group of the Biomedical Laboratory, part of the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the Politecnico di Torino (POL), is very active in biomedical research, especially in the fields of surgical techniques, biomolecular, cellular and tissue engineering, controlled drug delivery, bionanotechnology and bioartificial systems and materials.
The group is dedicated to the production of biomaterials and scaffolds for tissue engineering and their biological and physico-chemical characterization.There is extensive experience in designing interfaces with tailored properties for improved cell and tissue compatibility. The composition of the group is multidisciplinary and includes chemists, biomedical and chemical engineers, biotechnologists and biologists. A fully equipped biological laboratory enables the evaluation of the biocompatibility of biomaterials and scaffolds. POL’s main task in the project is to evaluate the cyto- and immunocompatible anti-inflammatory capacity and induction of angiogenesis of developed implanted prototypes in vitro.
